ABOUT THIS BRAND
Ayuna was founded by Isabel Ramos and Begoña San Juan, two seasoned beauty professionals with a vision for innovation. Begoña is a master esthetician, passionate beauty industry professional and expert in product development, Spa and Wellness therapies and aesthetic treatments. Dr. Isabel Ramos has a PhD in chemistry and is an expert in Green Technology and the development of natural cosmetics with a unique understanding the science of the skin, biochemical and biophysical mechanisms and the art of product textures.
Through Ayuna's essential skincare products, Begoña and Isabel introduce a whole new dimension to how to treat the skin based on topical fasting and well-aging. Topical fasting has the same basis as general fasting; eliminate overstimulation, limit intake and provide a balanced diet to allow for self-repair and self-regeneration mechanisms to be immediately activated. Well-aging applies the principles of epigenetics and the brain-skin connection to refocus our view of skin aging. Research shows that our thoughts, lifestyle and environment can alter our DNA. Ayuna skincare embraces this research, with a slow and intentional approach to aging that gives us the space to connect with beauty in a positive way and adapt the teachings of mindfulness to the realm of beauty. Begoña and Isabel’s experience in skincare, combined with their extensive understanding of the sophisticated beauty client, active ingredients and application methodology led them to a natural evolution in the field of skincare. From this alliance of knowledge and experience Ayuna, Less Is Beauty was born – an evolutionary scientific-botanical approach to cosmetics that favors simple beauty and a commitment to pure, effective and clean cosmetics.
...not even close to suitable for my skin. Love the packaging and beautiful fragrance, but this is a beautiful jar of milia, whiteheads and red spots. The first Ayuna discovery was the same: I used the soap a few times before throwing it away, the peel only got one chance to ruin my facial complexion because I finished it by applying it to my feet, and the mini facial cream (rich) I used on my hands. This time, I‚Äôm using the body lotion on my feet, because even my legs and arms breakout from coconut oil, and I tried the ‚Äúlight‚Äù cream around my eyes, lip line and on the tip of my nose where I had a bit of dryness. Woke up to little whiteheads around my lips, red bumps that turned into milia all around my eyes, a huge pimple on my nose and a lot of anger. At myself. For the record, my skin is oily, I‚Äôm in my late 30s with no wrinkles and clear skin ‚Äî as long as I use the correct products. My go-to moisturizers are Mahalo‚Äôs Rare Indigo, Y√ºli Nectar, MOSS Potentci and Kahina argan oil, so I can tolerate a variety of textures, but... WOW, this was brutal. For a while I kept it on my nightstand to use on my hands, but I was too afraid they might touch my face or pillow while I slept, so it‚Äôs elbows and feet again for Ayuna. It‚Äôs just not for everyone.
Ayana is one of my favorite finds from Beauty Heroes. I have combination skin, but this lightweight lotion sinks in quickly, and keeps my skin feeling great without creating excess oil. My husband even uses this cream daily, and he loved the neutral, light scent. I never thought I‚Äôd want to spend so much on a product, but I‚Äôll definitely repurchase. Ayana is worth it!
I fell in love with Cream II - Rich when it came in last year's box and have always used that one ever since. So I was excited to get to try the Light version. I think I might have to keep this one in stock too. I prefer this for daytime because it does feel very light and with little residue, whereas Rich feels a little bit like a sleeping mask. Perfect.
Ayuna may ruin me for all other skincare products. Their signature scent is so beautiful--light and relaxing so every time using it is like a spa day. This cream is the perfect consistency for nighttime use for me right now in the summer months, though I'll be interested to see how the light formulation handles Midwestern winters when my dry skin is really thirsty. A little bit goes a long way like all their products so I can see this being a new indulgence.
Wow! Never tried such an amazing face lotion! The scent is beautiful and addictive. The texture is incredible. My skin feels and looks fabulous! I'm a face oil user but this lotion is beyond everything! I will continue maybe to use oil at night but Ayuna cream will be my new ritual for the morning. So, so beautiful. It's like there is some magic going on.
